Autumn 2023: Darkness, daylight, and warm wishes.

We don’t have to look far to find Nature. After a long dark night comes the daylight revealing gloriously warm shades of autumn foliage. Here is a collage of moments I captured in snapshots, shared in autumns of recent-past years and present.

Collage of photos of autumn foliage and a sparkle of light

My photos are taken in the garden and close to home up North in the UK.
I am holding a sparkler in the garden – on the 1st day of the autumn lockdown in the UK in the 1st year of the pandemic (November 2020). It was an impromptu moment.
These days it seems life can be very cruel for many people.

‘Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness’.
With warm wishes to all.
